Invitation 

If you are a dreamer, come in, 

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, 

A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer 

If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire 

For we have some flax -golden tales to spin 

Come in! 

Come in!

Dusk. Now another door is closing on another day. 
The firey sun is sinking quickly in the west and the clouds 
are red and yellow, beautifully colored, but slowly turning 
gray and dull once more. The sky slowly becomes black 
and the world is asleep. Most of the world, that is. 

Some Minnechaug students are busy until after mid- 
night, studying for an Advanced Biology test, writing a 
history paper due the next day, or writing all of their 
yearbook copy before tomorrow's deadline. The student 
is huddled over his desk, furiously scribbling, not caring 
what he is scribbling by this tine. There is quite a bit of 
yawning, eye rubbing, looking at the clock. 

Many students give up and regret it the next day when 
the teacher announces, "O.K., now we're going to have a 
quiz on last night's work." Others don't do their home- 
work! Eventually all fall asleep and dream of a land where 
homework is against the law and school consists of 
watching movies and having parties.

Farewell to Summer 

Another summer has come and gone. Stu- 
dents have matured and with their growth, 
shared many new experiences. During the 
summer, new friendships were made and the old 
ones strengthened. 

Summer break gave students a chance to 
analyze the direction in which their futures were 
headed, while they still enjoyed life with spare 
time, just as summer passes, so does high 
school. We should combine memories of the 
past and hopes of the future with the present. 
Remember, we live in reality, not in the idealiza- 
tion of remembrances.

"Contact can be so easy and yet commu- 
nication can be impossible, or close to it. It is 
one thing to deep in contact, but to keep in 
communication is what's important. One 
needn't speak nor write to communicate, 
one need only to understand."

Dawn. The door opens on another day, 
another revolution of our vast, changing 
world. The reds and pinks spill carelessly 
over the horizon, licking color into the dull 
mountains and trees. Soon, a brilliant sphere 
is visible, peering over the moutain tops. 
Birds sing, insects chirp, and the stillness is 
broken. 

While this amazing display of natural won- 
der occurs, thousands of students are waking 
to begin a new day in Hampden and Wilbra- 
ham. Alarms are sleepily turned off and stu- 
dents try to become human again at 6:30 in 
the morning. Not an easy task! 

Once in school, many people wake up easi- 
ly. For others, A-Blocfc is forty-four more 
minutes to sleep. By B-Block almost all stu- 
dents are wide awade and ready to spend 
another exciting day at Chaug.

What does the future hold for you? 
I have no answer, but I hope you do. 

Think of yourself as a piece of clay, 
that you, yourself, can mold in any way. 

In your hands lies what's yet to come. 
Please be careful, walk don't run. 

You could do nothing with that clay, 
but only an idiot would throw it away; 
bit by bit until no clay remains 
then life won't seem like fun and games. 
Right now you can fiddle with that clay, 
but eventually that clay will rot away. 

Or, you could give your clay, your future, to another 

and let them make your decisions like a mother. 

Don't let them mold you into what they see. 

You'd become a creation of what they want you to be. 

You'd forever feel obligated to them, 

for they made you what they believe is a gem. 

You would belong to them until the end of time. 

This is no joke, it is no rhyme. 

The best choice is to use your mind, 

your imagination, and your devoted time. 

Working slowly with that clay 

you'd be forming a sculpture beautiful in every way. 

Molding exactly what you want to be, 

it would be worth the drudgery. 

Of course you'd be making mistakes along the way, 

but at least they're yours, nobody elses, you can say. 

Mold that clay into something that people will admire, 

for then, you'd never be a victim of satire. 

You'd be someone that people will respect, honor, and love. 

That clay could be something that you could be proud of. 

What does the future hold in store? 

I pray to God you choose the right door.

CLASS OFFICERS 




Tim Ross, Preside 




From the kick-off dance to the day of 
graduation, the senior class officers 
worked as a team. You may know a few 
of them individually as the captain of the 
boy's ski team, or the senior awarded 
"Nicest Smile", but as a group they re- 
present the Class of 1982. 

The four officers, Tim Ross (Presi- 
dent), John Metzger (Vice-President), 
Pam Getchell (Secretary), and George 
Quirk (Treasurer), along with advisor 
Mr. Mina, began planning long before 
the year started. Although the never- 
ending quest for senior privileges 
seemed a fiasco at times, it was only a 
part of the plans made and accom- 
plished for the class. 

The talents of all four officers were 
pushed to the limits as they became ex- 
perts on turkeys in November, cap mea- 
surements in December, and graduation 
speeches in January. 

The officers hope to have provided 
the best possible memories for the class 
of '82. In the years to come visions of 
Tim Ross dressed as "Diaperman" for 
Halloween, and Pam Getchell straining 
to measure graduation cap sizes while 
standing on a chair will be mixed with 
the bittersweet memories of the last 
dance at the prom and that moment at 
graduation when you realize that your 
childhood is over and the world awaits.

you, as your total dedication 
treasury total in Minnechaugs' history. 

Although you had a full schedule with coaching and classes, you always 

managed to lend an ear to suggestions. Instead of making private decisions, you 

presented your ideas and the essential information which allowed the officers 

to decide the course of the class. Your tireless pursuit of Senior Privilege 

h the Class of '82 really meant to you. 

Mr. Mina, you made our class a trend setter by agreeing with us to eliminate 
the Junior-Senior Work Weekend, calendar drive, and banquet and by reinstat- 
ing the Senior Breakfast. The Class of '82 thanks you and will always remember 
you more as a friend than an advisor. 

With love, 

The Class of '82 



CLASS HISTORY 



1978-1979: We arrived in 1978, and the year of '82 seemed so far away. Intimidated or not by the notorious "Alcohol, Pot, and 
Drugs" scandal in the Springfield Newspaper the year before, we charged into the new world of Minnechaug life. At first 
confused by rotating blocks and maze-like hallways, we eventually began to discover the difference between the letter "M". for 
the hall, and "A", for the block. Finally, after watching "The Gate" at the Tinkam entrance be demolished and rebuilt, only to 
be demolished again, and noting how the newly erected speed bumps cut the number of tickets issued to speeding school busses 
drastically, we settled into "normal" freshman life. Each of us soon found how much Minnechaug had to offer. We experienced 
our first pep-rally, sitting dumbly in the bleachers as the cheerleaders tried to teach us the Battle of the Classes Cheer; started 
attending home football games on Saturdays, making the top center bleachers the home of the all-exclusive freshmen rowdie 
section; and reluctantly took the plunge, literally into freshman pool. The spring brought our first class fundraiser, the car 
wash, which although not very profitable, brought us together as a class and showed our spirit. As the year came to a close we 
lost our Class Advisor, Miss Winetrout, and stumbled through Arena for the first time. 

1979-1980: We started sophomore year with the comforting realization that we were no longer the lowest form of life at 
Minnechaug and the stabilizing force of our new and enthusiastic Advisor, Mr. Mina. Right away we were given the 
opportunity to prove how tough we really were in more interesting gym courses like Project Adventure and Basic Lifesaving. 
The latter eventually taught us water rescue if we would keep from being drowned by our unexperienced friend and partner 
during the course of each class. The former emphasized both teamwork and individual motivation in activities like scaling a 15 
foot wall, and crossing a log suspended 25 feet in the air. Then, there was the big fundraiser, the Candy Sale. We were instantly 
transformed into miniature salespersons who wouldn't take "No" for an answer. Our persistant sales pitches paid off, as our 
candy sale became the most lucrative class fundraiser in Minnechaug's history. We were a much more vocal group at the Pep 
Rally this year (some even thought we out-yelled the Seniors!), and as the year wound down, we received our rings. With this, 
came the tradition of turning the ring 82 times for luck. Was it just a coincidence that turn number 82 (the one with an 
accompanying kiss) came up with who we thought was the best looking guy or girl? 

1980-1981: As Junior year arrived, we had climbed the ladder to become official upperclassmen. With our new position in the 
school, we discovered some of the least popular aspects of high school life — PSAT's, SAT's, and ACH's. Standardized 
College Board tests, whichever you took, there was always that same cold feeling in the pit of your stomach. Another horror of 
Junior year was "Disco." On the positive side, most of us gained our long awaited driver's licenses, and with them, a new 
unequaled freedom. There were also more great football games and our teams push all the way to the Super Bowl at UMASS 
where they lost a close one to Westfield. The Punk Rock dance was a first. Once again, our spirit and salesmanship proved 
outstanding as our magazine drive became another record breaker. Finally, the many changes instituted, including a new bell 
schedule, shorter days, the 4:00 late bus, and final elimination of snack break, all foreshadowed the possiblity of even greater 
changes on the horizon as Proposition 2 Vi was passed by the voters. The year ended with uncertainty about the jobs of many 
teachers and the future of many programs, but the spirit of the Class of '82 was undiminished and we worked, relaxed, and 
partied the summer away in preparation for the Big Year. 

1981-1982: Senior year started, surprisingly, with a newly positioned Arena. Other factors of Minnechaug life stayed the same, 
like a student parking lot littered with trash and broken glass. There were traditional fall activities like the Kickoff Dance, 
which although not well attended, was a great time for all who did go. Every one danced the night away, and the Senior girls 
did their best impression of a Las Vegas chorus line while the Black Apple Band played "New York, New York". The Turkey 
Raffle, the endless fight for Senior Privilege, new exorbidant prices for the same old lunches, and our class love for dressing-up 
will all be remembered. From Halloween to the Outrageous Garb Dance to Hat Day, many ingenious costumes evolved. The 
rest of senior year was a whirl of working, studying, partying, and college applications. As the year progressed and our high 
school career waned, we enjoyed the 50's Day Dance, distribution of class mugs. Senior Breakfast, and the "Big Two", the 
Prom and Graduation. These memories of our trend-setting class would mark the end of one phase in our lives, and our 
passage through one of the many important doors of life into yet another.

COLLEGE 




brag about 



ir scholastic achievements, expound upon

ions are the mainstay of most seniors' last year at Minnechaug. 
Sent away for in September, the little booklets collect dust on the desks of 
seniors for several months. This is known as procrastination. 

As deadlines approach (often December 31). potential college candi- 
dates scramble to get their applications out. The first pan is easy. It usually 
consists only of one word fill-ins. These, however, are followed by the 
ys, which can prove to be insurmountable obstacles, "What is your 
definition of success, and how do you hope to attain it in your lifetime?" 
"Content upon an experience which has helped you to discern a value whcih 
you hold." Thse are two of my favorites. If I could answer these questions. I 
wouldn't have to go to college!

CARS 



When 



Minnechaug students receive their driver's licences as ju- 
niors, driving a car is really just a novelty. However, by the time we are 
seniors, many of us have our own cars, and driving plays a very important 
part in senior life. 

The majority of cars in the student parking lot are those of seniors who 
have paid the $5 to park on that glass-littered expanse. This is the first step 
towards the freedom a car allows you because it enables you to catch some 
extra sleep without worrying about the school bus, leave school early on 
permanent dismissal, or even take a break from- the cafeteria fare by 
skipping out to lunch (as long as you don't get caught). 

Also, a car provides transportation to work, to any weekend activities 
around town, or anywhere else you might want to go with friends (shop- 
ping, skiing, the beach). The only drawback to this new mobility is the 
cost. Seniors spend much time budgeting their money so they can stretch 
their paycheck to cover gas, repairs, etc. Despite the expense, you won't 
find a senior willing to trade the freedom a car allows for the dollars that

PARTIES 



Senior year was a time when most of us felt we had earned our right to 
live it up. Anytime, anyplace, and anywhere, it was now our turn to party. 
It was on these occasions that the class felt closest, creating memories that 
would last a lifetime. 

The essential elements to most parties were, first of all, an occasion- 
— Halloween, Christmas, New Year's Eve, a vacation, a day off, a half day, a 
skip day, or eventually, graduation. 

Second, a place devoid of parents was needed, such as a house, a road, 
the woods, or Lake Mark (when it got warm). At this location 
of loud music to suit your particular taste, blared over a home or car stereo, 
was required. 

The final element, of course, was all the partying materials you desired. 
This meant different things to different people. But, no one will ever forget 

those " runs," or the taste of cold after it's been sitting in 

your trunk for an hour in the middle of January. Yes, for each class that 
Minnechaug graduates, there are some things that will

WORKING 



Various extracurricular activities can occupy a student's spare time. They 
extend from basketball to chess team, from Model Congress to Internation- 
al Club, and from library aide to I.aCrossc statistician. However, for some- 
students this variety of activities is not enough. To compensate for this void, 
people turn to the outside world in search of employment. 

Students work weekly for a paycheck which will be used as "fun money.'' 
These funds support the Friday night date and also pay for gas. For the most 
part, however, college-bound employees bank their money to later pav the 
high cost of tuition. 

Fast food restaurants such as Friendly's, McDonald's, and Wendy's em- 
ploy a large number of students. Certain grocery stores and drug stores, 
along with many Eastfield Mall businesses, serve as employers to many- 
others. Seemingly, State Line Potato Chip Company and fast food restau- 
rants require a maximum work effort. Merchandise stores and dining 
restaurants might demand a lesser effort. As many employees have stated 
before, "Money is money; it's just a heck of a lot easier working some place

YUKSEL ATAY 



Merhaba. No, this isn't a new strain of Russian Flu, it means hello in 
Turkish. This year Minnechaug students are having a wonderful opportuni- 
ty to brush up on their basic Turkish skills through Yuksel Atav, AFS 
student from Turkey. Yuksel is living with the Clapp family in W'ilbraham. 

Yuksel's accomplishments this year have been outstanding. "Then he 
arrived here in late August, Yuksel's English was limited, but by Christmas 
he was as fluent as the rest of us. Yuksel also received the best actor award 
for his performance in the One Act Play Festival. 

The majority of this year has been a constant exchange of Turkish and 
American customs with Yuksel. Many of us have picked up Turkish words, 
foods, customs and other things. Yuksel was introduced to peanut butter, 
charades, and football. We're all very lucky to have been given the opportu- 
nity to learn more about the Middle East. Thanks. Yuksel.

ADRIAN MERKOFJiJR 

What is AFS?? AFS is not a what, but a who. and one of those who's is 
Adrian Merdoffer. exchange student from Switzerland. Adrian : 
with the Badger family this year as part of the American Field Service- 
Program. 

In Switzerland, Adrian has to take a set program of courses, so he 
enjoyed being able to select his own courses here at Minnechaug. His 
favorites have been U.S. History Seminar with Ms. Brewer and Psychology. 
He has also been an active participant in the International flub and he was 
a stage manager for the One Act Play Festival in the fall. 

Adrian was first introduced to the States in Maine where he wal able to 
learn how to water ski. And while Ml. Tom is a long way from the Swiss 
Alps, Adrian did enjoy a lot of skiing this winter and it has become one of 
his favorite winter sports along with ice skating. 

Thanksgiving and Christmas American style were two of Adrian's 
favorite experiences. Turkey, pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread are among 
his new food favorites. 

All of us who have come to know Adrian this year feel fortunate to have 
made a good friend and to have learned many things about Switzerland. For 
many years to come, I'm sure we will all remember Adrian.

Soren Plejdrup is visiting the United States on the Educational Found; 
tion for Foreign Study Program. This organization has arranged for Sort 
to travel from his Denmark home to Vj'ilbraham and spend th 
Zawacki's. Consequently, Soren is attending Minnechaug 
member of the Class of '82. 

Our Danish visitor reports that he loves our school and 
return to Minnechaug during our Christmas vacation. (If only all of us had 
as much enthusiasm!) Besides school work. Soren has been involved wirii 
the Youth Fellowship Group of the Wilbraham United Church. Youth 
Fellowship has kept him occupied, but Soren has also been working on 
something else. His hope is to get his driver's license while he is in the 
United States. 

So, although his enthusiasm for Minnechaug may not seem typical, the 
dream of possessing a driver's license for the first time, all of us know well. 
It is basic similarities like this that have enabled many of us not to label 
Soren a "foreign student" but to accept him as a fellow teenager and friend.

ROLAND STRASSBURGER 




He faces automatic conscription 
into the army when he is eighteen. 
He belongs to a local sports and 
police club where he plays field 
hockey and tennis, and some of his 
common weekend activities include 
visiting pubs and discos. His home 
is a thriving industrial city of half a 
million people. Playing the piano 
and participating in a political par- 
ty are two of his primary diversions. 
Does this sound like the profile 
of a student attending school here 
at Minnechaug? Well, believe it or 
not, is is! His name is Roland 
Strassburger from Duisburg, Ger- 
many. He is staying with the 
Moores of Wilbraham and is a Sen- 
ior at our school. 

Roland has found many differ- 
ences the United States and Ger- 
many. They have ranged from rela- 
tively small discoveries, like finding 
that he prefers the sausage back 
home to that of the U.S.; to major 
insights into American life, includ- 
ing the fact that our educational sys- 
tem allows students less freedom 
than the more liberal German one 
does. Overall, Roland has enjoyed 
his stay in America, but says he 
won't mind returning to the quieter 
homelife of Germany without those, 
"lousy T.V. commercials bothering 
you every fifteen minutes."

"One life — a little gleam of time between two eternities." 

Carlylc 




We who are left, how shall we look again 
Happily on the sun or feel the rain. 
Without remembering how they who went 
Ungrudgingly, and spent 
Their all for us, loved too the sun and rain? 

A bird among the rain-wet lilac sings- 

But we, how shall we turn to little things. 

And listen to the birds and winds and streams 

Made holy by their dreams. 

Nor feel the heart-break in the heart of things 




'As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters."

Turn Forward Great Doors Wait to Be Opened 



In a rush of breeze, graduation sweeps by at last 
Turning our present into our past. 
Drawn forward by the indifferent march of time, 
I am forced to say farewell to this place and 
these memories of mine. 

Sometimes afraid of not being able to remember 
I yearn for the bold, warm skies of last September 
where I still had a year, and images formed so 

clearly. 
But this is folly, and will cost one dearly; 
Stare too long at yesterday, and you squander today. 

Cherish your memories, but worship them not 
For those who live for yesterday die and quickly 

rot. 
Memories worth saving are with you to stay; 

they won't go away- 
So go forth and make tomorrow even better 

than today.

IN MEMORY OF SUSAN JONES 
DECEMBER 12, 1943 TO DECEMBER 13, 1981 



"That's good, but I'm sure you can do better; keep on going." Susan Jones 
kept on going, serving as head of the English Department at Minnechaug for 10 
years. While pushing her students to achieve goals higher than they imagined 
possible, she set standards exceeded only by those she set for herself. 

Having Miss Jones as a teacher was an experience I will never forget. 
Sometimes I would get so angry when after I had worked on a paper for hours, 
she would rip it apart with her red marker. As the year went on, I, along with 
the rest of my class, came to respect and admire her. Her enthusiasm and love 
for teaching had come across to each of us. 

Once or twice a month she would miss class, usually on a Friday. "I have to 
go into Boston," she would say. It wasn't until half-way through the year that I 
discovered she was going into Boston for cancer treatment. 

When she was in school, she would stay after with students any day they 
asked her to. She was always there, eager to help us with anything. Before 
Christmas vacation last year, I was having a hard time with my term paper for 
her course in Research and Contemporary Lit. She gave me her phone number 
and told me to call her if I needed help. One day, frustrated and almost in tears, 
I called her. I had no qualms about making the call because I knew she 
wouldn't mind helping me. She treated me not as a student but as a friend who 
needed help. I will never forget that phone call. 

In her time at Minnechaug, Susan Jones had a great impact on the school, the 
English Department, and her students. We will remember her as a dedicated 
and determined teacher giving us her best, bringing out our best, and cheering 
us on when we succeeded. 

Susan Lannon 




Breezes whistle over the lines of trees gathered to protect 

The leaves drop forebodingly at the crevice of seasons. 

Mud runs and dries and runs again 

Coating the roads with slime 

The house stands undiminished in size 

Against the onslaughts of snow and rain. 

The color fade, the foundation shifts. 

But life goes on with — amid the heat of centuries. 

Since 1840 these walls have stood, 

The floorboards have endured many feet. 

The voices of the 19th century echo 

In the imaginations of inhabitants. 

The steam radiators hiss the spirits' message: 

"Let us out to live again 

Amid the people of this house. 

Since 1840 we have shared the same rooms 

But together we shall never be, 

Touching we shall never be." 



Space perseveres forever 

While time ticks on. 

Who else has stood here 

Wondering "Who am I amongst the people 

Who have passed this way?"

The Fall of 1981 was a rebuilding season for the Falcon football team. 
Although the team played with determination and pride, Minnechaug had a 
winless record. There were too many obstacles to overcome: a new coaching 
staff, a new and tougher conference, and a relatively young, inexperienced squad. 

This year's Captains, Todd Schwendenmann and Kevin Parks, were to be 
commended for their leadership. Other Seniors were Tim Connors, Kevin 
Goudreau, Anders Hedelin, Todd Larson, Ted Sares, Jim Szmyt and Ed Yazel. 

Todd Schwendenmann, Tim Bishop and Freshman Glen Garvey were defen- 
sive standouts, while Doug Keith and Steve Rymsza made some outstanding pass 
receptions from Quarterback Rick Thorpe. The hard running of backs Dave 
Gwatkin and Kevin Parks, and the fine kicking of Anders Hedelin, our Swedish 
exchange student, sparked the team. 

This year's coaching staff included Head Coach, Joe Kominski, Assistant 
Coaches, Art Mina, Rick Nanartowich and Jim Punderson, and dedicated Train- 
er, Hal Miller. 

A well-attended banquet, including players, cheerleaders and their families, 
helped to ease the disappointment at the end of the season. 

With eighty percent of the team returning next year, Falcon football should 

rise again to the heights of previous seasons. Football tradition will not fall at 

Minnechaug. , _ . . _,,

The Varsity Cheerleaders have accomplished many goals this 
year. They began the season when awarded second place at a 
competition sponsored by the Patriot Cheerleaders. The girls 
were then honored to cheer at a Celtics and Nuggets basketball 
game held in the Springfield Civic Center. The twelve member 
team is also responsible for coordinating Pep Rallies. All this 
work took a lot of time and practice guided by their coach Terry 
Owens and assisted by captain Jill Whyte. When asked what is 
most important to the cheerleaders, they unanimously answer, 
"School spirit!!!" No matter which Falcon team the cheerleaders 
are rooting for, if they've gotten you P-S-Y-C-H-E-D, they have 
achieved their ultimate goal.

This wasn't a star-studded team of a few players. It took total dedication 
and effort of every member. Chuck Hough, Billy Gallant and Javier Faus. 
who were physically battered almost every game, continued to produce in 
the offensive attack. 

John Metzger continually improved to become one of the premier half- 
backs in W-Mass by season's end, and P.J. Cambo steadied the offense and 
made things happen with his hard-nosed but skillful play. 

The defense, headed by sweeper Bob Downes with Eric Jones and Keith 
Pokorney at his sides and number 4 man, Mark Powell, frustrated opposing 
forwards all year. 

Jeff Leven made remarkable saves game after game. Players like Andy 
Young, Dave Wise, Rich Carrigan, Dave Pickering, Kris Kober. and Bill

Todd Fuller, despite a painful ankle injury, played with determination

This season the girls' gymnastic team tumbled their way to victory 
by capturing the Western Mass. Title and setting a new Western 
Mass. record with a total of 126.9 points. During the season each 
member had her share of outstanding performances but Minne- 
chaug's depth and team effort is what achieved success. 

All of the fourteen girls are dedicated athletes and worked hard to 
achieve their goals, yet enjoyed themselves in the process. Team 
secrets, jokes, stuffed animals, and silly superstitions kept the girls 
smiling and their spirit up. The team coached by Pat Lynch and Pat 
Casio consisted of Seniors Diana Nolte (Capt.), Kerry Costello, 
Wendy Peck, Emily Plumb, and Paula Mazur — who are wished the 
best of luck in the future. Juniors, Holly Corey and Lori Veto. 
Sophomores Denise Messier, Kristin Smith and of course the talent- 
ed young freshmen, Judy Parent, Karen Singiser, Shelly Sauve, Kris- 
ten White and Jackie Usher. 

The girls also put in extra time to present a fantastic gym show to 
the public, but no one could have enjoyed it more than the girls 
themselves.

The Cross-Country team finished its season with a record of 7 wins and 4 
losses, including a 6-meet winning streak. Having lost its top four runners to 
graduation last year, the varsity squad looked towards a rebuilding year. But 
with the arrival of many promising runners, along with the return of a few 
veterans, the team finished 5th in the league out of 12 teams. Juniors Dave 
Putnam and Danny Flynn were captains of the varsity squad. 

During the season, Danny Flynn and Mark McEathron led the team; Flynn 
taking 8 team first places and 3 meet first places, McEathron taking 4 team first 
places and 1 meet first place. McEathron also clocked the fastest time of the 
season on Minnechaug's 2.7 mile course: 14:27. Sophomore Ken Belanger ran as 
third man for the team after spending the summer training and racing in Alaska. 
Junior Mike Pilarcik held down the fourth position during the season. Dave 
Putnam, Sophomores Paul Snow, Jason Knapczik and Mike Vermette, and 
Freshman Dean Dickenson (who took 7th place in his division — Freshmen 
Boys — at the Coaches' Invitational) battled throughout the season for the rest 
of the scoring places - fifth, sixth and seventh. 

Two girls infiltrated the boys' team this year; Janet Sweetman, recovering 
from her sprained ankle, ran very well; and Freshman Sue Counos who is 
looking towards a promising future in running.

"Vamonos Falcons!" cheered the enthusiastic Falcon Field Hockey Team despite 
the pouring rain. (Wet weather soon became an indication of our game days.) 
Though an abundance of vigor and exuberance existed among the girls, the crush- 
ing loss of fifteen varsity players and two coaches took its toll, as is evident from 
our record. 

Aiding Coach Cope in motivating the team were Captains Anne Majkiewicz and 
Carrie Garvey. Carrie, along with Seniors Suzi Jones and Julie Tamsey and Junior 
Robin Benoit, led the Falcon offense. They were assisted by the midfield links Anne 
Paulhus, Beth Insley, Sonda Springer and Kathy Tamsey. Anne Majkiewicz was 
truly outstanding as center halfback diminishing many a threat. The strength of the 
team rested primarily in our defense with excellent goal tending by Lauren Rigney. 
Halfbacks Linda Sattler, Cindy Byrne, Mary Sullivan, and sweepers Tami Rae and 
Gayle Sherman all put in a good effort. 

Maybe our record wasn't the greatest, but we had fun playing field hockey and 

that's all that counts. ,- , c . „ „„„

Minnechaug's men's gymnastics team had a very suc- 
cessful season in 1981. They were undefeated in all of 
their meets, including the one against long-time rival 
West Springfield. The team went on to win the Western 
Mass. Championship, a title not held by the team since 
1967. 

A major reason for this year's success was the hard 
work of coach Keith Lomas. He has been with the 
school's gym team for the past four years and has worked 
hard to build a strong squad. He was assisted by Sean 
Crowley who did a fine job in his first year as coach. 

The backbone of this year's team was freshman Curt 
Holdsworth. Although this was Curt's first year at Minne- 
chaug, he is by far the best gymnast this school has ever 
had. He holds the school record for almost every event 
and took three first places on the pommel bars, parallel 
bars, and high bar in Western Mass. He placed second on 
the other three events. 

Some of our other outstanding members were Jim 
Beaudry with the school record on vaulting, a 9.0. He 
also placed on both vaulting and ring at Western Mass. 
Captain Mike Moody gave a good performance at West- 
ern Mass. with awards for floor excercise, vaulting, and 
pommel horse. Also earning awards were Mike Landa 
and Mike Branconnier. 

Next year's team shows great promise with the loss of 
only one senior, Mike Moody. Jim Beaudry, Dave 
Schafer, Brian Parks, Greg Robinson, and Mike Bran- 
connier will all be returning as seniors. 

The team would like to thank Keith Lomas, Sean 
Crowley and the coaches of the girl's gymnastic team for 
making this a successful year for all of us.

Well, we didn't make any Western Mass. tournament, and we weren't finalists this 
year, but we did have a winning record and a lot of fun. Seven wins, six losses and three 
hard fought ties summed it up for the girls' varsity soccer team this year. 

Captains, Mindy Harris, Jacquie and Jennifer Willson led a 21 squad team to a third 
place finish in the A-division. 

All-Western Mass. Jacquie Willson accumulated seven goals and five assists at the 
center half-back position. Mindy Harris recorded 3 shut-outs against some top- 
notched teams, using her heroic diving and blasting kicks (ave. 60 yds/game). Jen 
Willson was hampered by a knee injury at the beginning of the season but recovered 
quickly and made a good comeback. She was amongst the top scorers in the league. 

Seniors Anne Crawford, Lisa Schmidt, Sue Harris, Jackie Moriarty, Debbie Scott

Earlier in the year the Varsity Falcon basketball team had visions of exceeding 
the accomplishments of last year's team. They fixed their eyes on making it into the 
Division II Finals at the Civic Center, but due to a loss of upperclassmen and 
returning starters, the team was unable to reach their goal. The only two returning 
lettermen were Lance Castonguay and Kevin Corser, both serving as the nucleus of 
a rebuilding team. The rest of the Falcons included guard Jim Pickering and nine 
underclassmen. 

The Falcons will be at full strength, though, next year with three exceptions (the 
seniors), of course. Starters this year included Sophomore Dave Mendoza (11.9 
points and 5.8 rebounds per game), Dave Pickering (5.9, 3.1), and Steve Rymsza 
(8.7, 6.9). Castonguay ended up with 11.5 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, while 
Corser was team high with 13.4 pts. and 8.1 rebounds. 

Under the direction of Coach Jim Girotti, the squad posted a winning percentage 
just under .500. However, the future only looks bright for Falcon basketball. Quite 
possibly the Division II Finals and trip to the Civic Center could become a reality. 

Best of luck to next year's hoop team and keep on dunking!

The girl's Swimming and Diving team performed well this season. 
Sue Laing, the swimming coach, added her extensive background in 
swimming to the team producing a strong team. Diving coach Kate 
Griswold, an experienced diver, coached the divers on to a productive 
season. Marie Ryan, a senior at Springfield College, aided Coach Laing 
throughout the season. Manager Peggy O'Shea, a senior, donated her 
priceless time to the team. 

The strong team members were senior captain Sharon Corey (div- 
ing), junior Joanna Stoeber (butterfly and individual medley), sopho- 
mores Daria Dolecki (50 yd. and 100 yd. free-style) and Lisa Riddle 
(individual medley and back-stroke), and freshman Karen Griswold 
(200 yd, and 500 yd, free-style). 

The rest of the team members provided added depth to the team. 
Juniors Holly Corey, Mary Jarvis, and Tammy Trombley, sophomores 
Tracie DeGrandpre, Kate Hegarty, Wendy Holbrook, and Rose Smith 
provided the team with strong backup swimmers. 

Thirteen of the twenty-four member team were newcomers, many 
with no previous competitive experience. Only two members of the 
team will graduate in 1982, and the new members of the team have good 
potential. The next few years look very promising!

The Varsity Hockey team started their season with high hopes. A 
strong nucleus of juniors and seniors were returning to the team and 
promised the Falcons a chance to take the cup. Unfortunately, their 
aspirations were dashed early in the year. Several players decided to 
go to prep school, and the team lost the services of outstanding junior 
defenseman Ron Troie via an injury. Later in the season a rash of 
misfortunes crippled the team. A number of J.V.'s were promoted to 
replace nine varsity losses and have proved competitive replace- 
ments. 

Team Seniors P.J. Cambo, Eric Jones, Jim May, and Capt. Larry 
Lloyd experienced a disappointing year, but they continued to play 
with intensity. Jones, Lloyd, and May have accounted for most of the 
team's goals and assists. Junior Keith Trombley anchored the goal- 
tending position along with P.J. Cambo. perhaps the team's greatest 
asset was its young players. Sophomores Scott Brown, Jeff Debonee, 
Pat Kendall, Jim Plante, and Freshman Brian Stearns are the promis- 
ing stars of the future. 

First-year coach Martin Kibbe has given his all. He will have a 

strong nucleus of young players plus a seasoned group of juniors and 

seniors to build for the future. Next year's Falcons under Coach 

Kibbe's guidance will be formidable. Better luck next year Falcons!

If we had only realized a basketball game consists of four eight 
minute quarters instead of two five minute quarters, we would have 
been good play-off prospects. 

This year it seemed as though we never started playing up to our 
true potential until we were down by fifteen-twenty points and then 
we were pressed for time and came up short four or five points. 

We did, however, improve on just about everything this year, from 
team spirit to shooting foul shots. In this aspect we certainly had a 
winning season! 

Seniors Lore Simpson, Jennifer Willson, and Jacquie Willson each 
had their big nights with eighteen points each, while Beth Libby hit 
the double figures rebounding in nearly every game. Janice "Jor- 
dache" Jordon improved immensely on both ends of the court and 
Sharon Flagg added some sharp shooting on the wing. 

Next winter should be a prominent one, as Junior Kathy Murphy 
will be back playing the role as pt. guard along with sharp shooter 
Karen Madden. Heidi Rist and Mary Miller gained valuable exper- 
ience this year and should be "tough little cookies' under the boards 
next year." 

Well, we had a lot of fun although we didn't make the tournament. 
Keep smiling Coach D — like we always say, "Wait 'til next year!!"

This year, as in many previous ones, the men's swim team 
came out with a winning season. Led by Senior Captains Brian 
Semle, Tim Ross, and Scott Holbrook, the team had 
returning varsity members contribute to the team effort. These 
swimmers included Senior David Magill, Juniors Eric Stro- 
shine, Bill Miner, Al Florian, and Jeff Piaget, and Sophomores 
Mike Landa and Jeff Doten. Outstanding newcomers to the 
team were Junior diver Jim Beaudry, Sophomore distance 
swimmer Mike Schnur, and Freshman David Sullivan. 

Coaches Hall Miller and Mark Epstein led the team during 
the first year of coed meets, giving everyone a new and interest- 
ing experience that all the swimmers and divers enjoyed. Also, 
diving coach Katie Griswold's knowledge and expertise was 
much appreciated by both the men and women divers, many of 
whom had not dove before. 

All in all this season was very productive for the men's swim 
team, and we wish the team much luck for the next year, 
by David Magill

The Women's Varsity Ski Team, led by Co-captains Carrie Garvey and Sue Jones, 
had another good year under Coach Deely. After having lost only one senior, the 
team was able to improve their record from fourth to second place in Western 
Mass. 

Senior Carrie Garvey had a good year, often finishing in the top ten in Western 
Mass. Sue Jones, also a senior, helped lead the team to a second place finish. 

Heather Karlson, a returning junior, was able to improve her winning times as 
the year went on. Lisa St. Germain, also a junior, finished with top times for the 
team. Wenda Luff, in her third year of racing, brought in consistently good times to 
help the team. Bonnie Williams a junior, who was a newcomer this year surprized 
everyone and produced winning times. 

Freshman Stephanie Quirk consistently finished with times which placed her in 
the top ten in Western Mass. Kari Carlson, Andrea Lefebvre, Heather Rumplik, and 
K. K. Asbeck, along with Michelle Methe, Heidi Jackson, and Kelly Mayo have also 
added to the overall effort and helped the team have an excellent year.

Who would ever think that after last year's Division I domination by the men's ski 
team there would be an encore by the new 1982 version? But so the Western Mass. 
title went again to Minnechaug after what has to be the most competitive season in 
our history. The team spent the first two races apparently warming up to the 
challenge ahead, and the remainder of the year speaks for itself. Outstanding 
players for the year were Captain George Quirk, Jeff Shay, Glenn Rahilly, and Mark 
Pincince. 

Even with the loss of "General" Quirk as well as other senior veterans John 
Metzger and Joe McGranaghan, the remaining men will still return as an all-star 
team next season. The proud tradition of Coach Art Mina will fall into the hands of 
up-coming racers like Rich Carrigan, Tim Blomberg, Miklos Ats, Ted Moore, and 
Mike Pilarcik, and freshman Curt Rahilly. The team even experienced international 
flavor with exchange students Javier Faus and Miguel Odriozola. Coach Mina 
describes his team as, simply, a phenomenon!

How many times have you been 
awakened on a Monday morning 
by, "Good Morning. Please stand 
for the Pledge of Allegiance . . ."? 
Well, now you know who is to 
blame — the Office Aides. Besides 
waking you up Monday mornings, 
they also help out with clerical 
work around the office and assist 
the regular secretarial staff with 
almost anything that needs doing. 
This makes the office a lot more 
organized during those early 
hours. 

"Hi, could you get me these 
magazines, please?" The innocent 
looking piece of paper suddenly 
unfolds revealing a list of twenty- 
eight back issues of Newsweek and 
various other primary sources. 
However, finding back issues is 
only one of the duties Library 
Aides perform. They also do such 
tasks as checking books in and 
out, returning books to the 
shelves, and to keep the shelves 
neat and orderly. These jobs 
sometimes become unexciting but 
are essential for the proper main- 
tenance of the media center. 

Nurse's Aides help the nurse 
keep records and file the student's 
medical information. They some- 
times gain a little practical exper- 
ience treating wounds or illnesses. 
Some of the Aides are planning 
careers in medicine and hope the 
experience will help. 

Guidance Aides help organize a 
guidance office and find anything 
for anybody including college 
catalogs, scholarship information 
and SAT applications. They also 
process and sort all of the out go- 
ing mail to Minnechaug's students. 
Aides spend their free blocks in 
the Guidance Office getting satis- 
faction from helping out.

For the Smoke Signal, 1982 will 
go down in history as "The Year 
of the Changes." 

September brought a new home- 
room in G-4 with old lockers in 
K-hall. 

"The exercise is good for the 
staff." 

November brought a new adviser, 
Mrs. McFarland, and the get orga- 
nized campaign. 

"You want articles written be- 
fore layout?" 

December brought a new printer, 
the Collaborative Program, and a 
new way to do layout. 

"Pica? What on earth is a pica?" 
January sent us Mary Megliola, the 
new Editor-in-Chief. 

"Well, at least she's a little taller 
tham Pam ..." 

March and April were the start of 
the new staff. 

"You mean none of you know 
how to do layout?" 
May and June were the end of the 
Smoke Signal year. Thankfully. 

"Don't forget, layout is August. 
Start writing those articles."

Being a Phys. Ed. leader has its 
rewards. Leaders are able to help and 
encourage students to try something 
new; they have the pride of seeing a 
student accomplish something that he 
previously couldn't do. Leaders get a 
chance to repeat some things that they 
enjoyed in their first two years, such as 
gymnastics or Project Adventure.

"The Performing and Visual 
Arts Society" is a very complicat- 
ed name for a club whose purpose 
is rather simple. PAVAS is a 
charitable organization whose 
members plan and run fundraisers 
during the course of the school 
year in order to make money to 
support the arts in the greater 
Springfield area as well as to don- 
ate to many deserving charities. 
Recipients of recent PAVAS do- 
nations include Public Television 
station WGBY, the environmental 
group Green Peace, the Judy Du- 
bour Cancer Fund, and our own 
"Smoke Signal" newspaper. 

Fundraising plans included the 
Carwash-Bakesale in October, the 
Mistletoe sale at Christmas time, 
and a raffle and Talent Show be- 
fore June. Social activities for club 
members also played an important 
role in the club. Students and their 
families enjoyed the Annual Pot- 
Luck dinner in late October, the 
caroling and Christmas party 
night was a success, and at least 
two club trips were planned for 
the spring. 

So, proving that its simple for- 
mula works, the Performing and 
Visual Arts Society combined fun- 
draising and club activities for an- 
other banner year in '81-'82.

Student Government is one organi- 
zation that is always active. Even 
though the members miss a block ev- 
ery once in a while, you cannot really 
call it a freebie when they end up 
doing as much as they would in class. 

Once again the Student Govern- 
ment served as an important link be- 
tween the student body, faculty, and 
administration. They sponsored 
dances such as the Outrageous Garb 
Dance, a Christmas Semi -Formal, a 
regular dance and a punk rock dance. 
The government also benefitted other 
clubs in the school and community 
with large donations earned by fund 
raising events. 

Meetings are run by parliamentary 
procedure under the direction of 
Chairman Anthony Roncalli and 
Moderator Christine Boyajian. An 
agenda is distributed at the start of 
meetings and followed with feedback 
from the representatives. 

Next time you pass by the noisy 
classroom, remember these kids are 
working for our school and for Min- 
nechaug students.

am and it's not the field hockey

ily chess team. The game of 
less requires a lot of concentra-

"They are small, white, furry 
rodents of circumpolar distribu- 
tion, which are noted for their an- 
nual mass migration to the sea. 
What are they?" Who Cares? The 
As Schools Match Wits team does. 
Knowing that the answer to that 
question is "Lemmings," is just as 
important as knowing the defini- 
tion of the word "Splenetic." The 
team studies subjects that include 
music, sports, literature, and gen- 
eral knowledge. 

This year's team consisted of 
David Magill, David Pickett, Pam 
Getchell, Mary Megiola, and alter- 
nate Mike Schnurr. They put 
hours of hard work into preparing 
for their television appearance. 
This involved memorizing ques- 
tion cards, reading through plot 
outlines, and meeting at Man's or 
Pam's house for some three 
against two competition. 

The three departing seniors and 
advisor Mr. Musselman have great 
aspirations for next year's team 
and wish them the best of luck.

Minnechaug Regional High 
School has three bands: the Con- 
cert Band consists of mostly un- 
derclassmen, the Wind Ensemble 
is made up of more advanced play- 
ers, and the Jazz Workshop is the 
band that contains primarily jazz 
instruments such as trombones 
and saxophones. 

All three bands meet daily, and 
their members receive five credits 
per year. Band is basically like any 
other subject; the students are as- 
signed homework, which is to 
practice regularly. Much practice 
is necessary because many of the 
musical pieces are extremely diffi- 
cult. Members are also expected 
to take private lessons in addition 
to their own practicing. The con 
certs themselves can be consid 
ered "exams"; if a student hasn' 
done his practicing, his perfor 
mance will demonstrate this. 

The bands play at many differ 
ent events throughout the year. 
They can be heard at the home 
football games, playing the Na 
tional Anthem and the Fight song 
The Wind Ensemble plays at the 
Winter or Christmas Concert. The 
Concert Band and Wind Ensemble 
play at the Pops Concert, with 
which dinner is traditionally 
served. The Jazz Workshop plays 
at formal school functions such as 
the inductin of the members to the 
National Honor Society. Band 
members are enthusiastic indivi- 
duals, whose hard work pays off in 
brilliant performances.

During the morning hours at 
Minnechaug, one can hear the 
three chorus groups, the Concert 
Choir, the Girls' Chorus and the 
Madrical Singers, rehearsing in 
G-2. 

The Concert Choir has an i 
lary group called the Chamber 
Choir. Students who are involved 
with this must audition. The twen- 
ty best voices are then selected to 
perform as a group. The Chamber 
Choir sings for various social 
groups in the area. 

Mr. Amerman, chairman of the 
music department, is the director 
of all choral groups. He has great 
aspirations for the Madrica 

roup and hopes that they will be 
featured in a concert. 






The Winter Concert, which 
took place on December 15 was 
well received by the crowd. 

The concert included selections 
by the Chamber Choir, Ninth 
Grade Chorus, Madrigal Singers, 
and Concert Choir, all under the 
direction of Warren Amerman, 
and the Wind Ensemble directed 
by Charles Beeler. 

The highlight of the Wind En- 
semble's performance was a piece 
entitled, "A Christmas Intrada" 
written by Alfred Reed. 

Performing pianists in the cho- 
ral program were Stacey Hill, 
Kim O'Connor, and Julie Consi- 
dine.

What club at Minnechaug is the 
most spirited with over eighty ac- 
tive members and one active Ats? 
It's the Junior Classical League. 
The J.C.L. is comprised of Latin 
students interested in the classical 
era of Greek and Roman life. 

Activities sponsored by the 
J.C.L. this year were the Justin 
dance, the J.C.L. Player's produc- 
tion of "Orpheus," the State Cata- 
pult Contest, the Massachusetts Ju- 
nior Classical League Volleyball 
Tournament, Senior Citizen's Day, 
the M.J.C.L. Convention, and last- 
ly, Family Night. 

The Junior Classical League's 
advisor is Mrs. Ats, a dedicated 
teacher whose enthusiasm shaped 
the J.C.L. into a worthwhile and 
popular club at Minnechaug. 

This year's officers were Louie 
Kochanek, President;Janet Sweet- 
man, Vice President; Robin Ben- 
oit, Secretary; and Kristen Sin- 
giser, Treasurer.

The International Club, Minne- 
chaug's newest and biggest club, is 
a whole lot more than a couple o 
foreign students. In fact, the Inter 
national Club is seven foreign ex 
change students and fifty enthusi 
astic members who are interested 
in learning more about other cul 
tures and don't mind having a lit 
tie fun in the process. 

Besides playing host to the for 
eign exchange students, The Inter 
national Club sends Minnechaug 
students abroad through the Wil- 
braham Hampden American Field 
Service Chapter.

The Mathletes compete in six 
different mathematical categories 
including arithmetic, trigonom- 
etry, and analytical geometry. The 
questions are very difficult and 
take much concentration, but the 
simplest of errors may cost the 
meet. 

They compete with nineteen 
other schools in Western Massa- 
chusetts. The Mathletes have a 
very impressive record; in the past 
six years, under the guidance of 
Victor Granaudo, they have 
earned five Western Mass. titles. 
They hope to do as well this year. 




Each year, the members of the 
Model Congress Club, with their 
advisor, Ms. Brewer, conceive and 
prepare a Bill to compete with 
those of other high schools 
throughout the state and region at 
AIC's annual Model Congress. 
The Bill is carefully developed, 
and its battle worthiness is tested 
in mock debates in which the 
members honestly attack their 
own Bill to discover its vulnerable 
spots and correct them. 

Minnechaug has been very suc- 
cessful with the Congress. In pre- 
vious years, our team has had its 
Bills commended by Governor 
King.

Theatre Arts was not just an- 
other English course. Besides all 
of the tedious assignments that 
were accomplished, the classes 
found time to perform a winter 
production on stage in Minne- 
chaug's auditorium. 

On December 11 and 12 in 
1981, Dr. Heiney's C-Block and G- 
Block Theatre Art classes per- 
formed outstandingly the classic 
play "A Christmas Carol" by 
Charles Dickens. 

The classes had their own di- 
rectors, stage manager, and cos- 
tume and prop person. These stu- 
dents along with the help of gifted 
actors and actresses made the 
show a success. 

The course is misleading to 
some as an all-play-and-no-work 
course, which is an inaccurate 
statement. Without a doubt, the 
class has a meaningful happy me- 
dium.

This year's student hostesses 
and hosts were an active bunch. 
Miss Alquist, the advisor, 
helped to organize the dates 
and make sure that all events 
were covered well. Senior 
Wendy Peck, president, and ju- 
nior Priscilla Robinson, Vice 
President, took care of the rest. 

The Hostesses and Hosts 
helped out at the fall open 
houses, freshmen orientation, 
the National Honor Society In- 
duction Ceremony, Pops Con- 
certs, and other school activi- 
ties. 

A new addition to the group 
this year were the hosts. Minne- 
chaug has never had male hosts 
before. There's a rumor circu- 
lating between the hostesses 
that the fine hosts are adding a 
spice of life to Minnecha 
halls. 





Like any other group of editors 
in the past years, the 1981-82 Fal- 
con Editors had their share of ups 
and downs. But, when everyone 
works together like this bunch of 
kids, everything was bound to 
work out O.K. — and it did! 

There were the good times, the 
laughs and secrets with your co- 
editor, the feeling of accomplish- 
ment when your deadline was met 
on time, and the ultimate feeling 
you receive while looking through 
this book. And there's the not-so- 
good times when your pictures 
weren't developed in time for 
"yesterday's" deadline, the deadly 
talks with the Advisor and Editor- 
in-Chief, and of course, the con- 
stant war between Smoke Signal 
vs. Yearbook. 

Although most of the Editors 
are Seniors, Anne, Pam, Beth, Jim, 
Martha, Anne, Jill, Sue, Sue, 
Sandy, Mark, and Cindy, our Ju- 
niors and Sophomores, Lisa, 
Dave, Sue, Amanda, and Linda, 
will come on in and rule the book 
next year. 

We had to say goodbye to our 
faithful old homeroom Y-l, and 
move right on up to the better 
room D-9. This supposedly made 
more space and a few times, we 
actually heard annoucements!! 

"Who has D-Block free to meet 
the photographer?" "Oh Yea, 
we're selling yearbooks both 
lunches today!" "Did you get the 
artwork boards yet?" "Deadline 
. . . When? . . . Today — Oh." 
"Can you develop these pics?" 
"Fill out a form for Stevens!" "Lis- 
sen up you guys!" %"Talk to me!" 
"Need help?" "I'm going nuts!" 
— Those are really typical lingo 
from our Editors. Thanks '81-'82 
Editors, you did a great job!

The 1982 Falcon Staff has much 
to be accredited for. The help 
through those deadlines and the 
numerous "little" jobs assigned by 
the editors are all a part of the 
work they have accomplished this 
year. 

It's due to their efforts that the 
Yearbook managed to reach their 
advertising goal and keep the all 
important price of the Yearbook 
down. 

The Yearbook Staff was re- 
sponsible for all of the odd jobs 
the editors didn't have the time 
for. Without their hard work, the 
1982 Yearbook couldn't have 
been completed.

Once again the Falcon Players 
under the direction of Steve Baily 
put on another fabulous One Act 
play contest. A lack of time and 
people made it difficult, but as 
usual all of the plays pulled 
through. As a matter of fact, the 
play "Picnic on the Battlefield" al- 
most didn't go on, but in the end 
they pulled things together and 
ended up winning best play. Their 
success was due to the efforts of 
Jean Albano, their director, who 
won best director; Sheryl Hicks, 
who was judged best actress; and 
Yuksel Atay, AFS student and best 
actor. 

Other outstanding perfor- 
mances came from Laurie Woo- 
dard — best supporting actress 
and Joe McGranaghan - best sup- 
porting actor for his performance 
in "Growing Pains." All four 
plays and all the actors did an out- 
standing job and put on a great 
show!

The Emerald Key students in 
the class of '81 elected to convert 
its Society to the National Honor 
Society. This incorporates more 
of the student body. Minnechaug's 
first induction ceremony was held 
November 10, 1981. Forty-one ju- 
niors and seniors were selected by 
the chapter's faculty committee by 
meeting high standards for schol- 
arship, leadership, service and 
character. 

To be eligible for membership, 
sophomore students need a grade 
point average of 4.00, junior stu- 
dents need an average of 3.69 and 
seniors need a 3.33. Leadership 
and service are based upon the stu- 
dent's participation in at least two 
activities during the previous year. 
Character requires that student's 
records be free from serious disci- 
plinary problems. 

Minnechaug's chapter is active 
in the respect that the students 
perform services for the student 
body. 

George Proulx, coordinator of 
Guidance, is the advisor for this 
group. He is very enthusiastic 
about the National Honor Soci- 
ety's success here at Minnechaug.

If you have an interest in pho- 
tography, whether it be casual or 
serious, the Photography Club is 
for you. Led by Mr. Petzold, the 
group gets into all aspects of the 
world of photography. The year 
begins with instruction on basic 
camera handling and picture com- 
position, and gradually progresses 
through developing of prints and 
negatives. Finally, the group visits 
a professional studio and starts to 
look into the aspects of profes- 
sional photography.

Where else but at the Minne- 
chaug Folk Festival can you hear 
David Brubeck's "Take Five" and 
Neil Sedaka's "Should've Never 
Let You Go" in the same pro- 
gram? This year the Folk Festival 
featured some of Minnechaug 
most talented musicians perform- 
ing live in concert. 

The organizers of this year's 
Folk Festival included solo vocal- 
ists, solo pianists, vocal duets, and 
a full blown rock band. The audi- 
ence was receptive and got their 
one dollar's worth out of the per- 
formance. This event showed the 
large degree of musical talent 
which exists in Minnecha 
dents.

Although the skies were cloudy 
with the threat of rain, nothing 
could dampen the spirits of the 
graduating Class of 1982 on June 
eleventh. As the class members pa- 
raded onto the football field to the 
traditional "Pomp and Circum- 
stance," each one offset the seri- 
ousness of the occasion by carry- 
ing a balloon which were eventu- 
ally all deposited in a pile by the 
podium. 

Speeches were given by Dave 
Pickett, exchange student Anders 
Hedelin, and class secretary Pam 
Getchell. Possibly one of the most 
moving readings of the evening, 
however, was a poem from Class 
Advisor Art Mina. Other memora- 
ble moments included Bob 
Downes and Howard Barouxis 
kissing Miss Walinski, and Todd 
Larson cartwheeling onto the 
stage. 

As the ceremony came to a 
close, it could easily have been 
looked upon as an end, but to the 
Class of '82 it was really only the 
beginning.

50 DAYS DANCE APRIL 30, 1982 



Where else could you find seniors 
dressed in rolled up jeans, poodle 
skirts, lettermen sweaters, saddle 
shoes, leather jackets, greased back 
hair and dancing to "The Twist,"? 
The answer ... at Minnechaug, of 
course, on April 30, 1982. 

The annual 50 Days Dance is the 
main start of the activities at the end 
of senior year. Everyone was out to 
have a good time just dancing the 
night away. And of course, appear- 
ances by the gang of Probers and the 
clique of Cheesedogs made the night 
successful. Also, George Quirk 
Lisa Schmidt will be long remem- 
bered as their "Nerd" fashions were 
quite accurate. 





SENIOR 
PROM/BANQUET 



We've loved these days. 




The Black Apple Band began 

playing, the young ladies and gentlemen 
left their tables and walked to the dance 
floor .... the 1982 Minnechaug Senior 
Prom had begun. 

Things were working out nicely after 
all. Was it only a few hours ago that my 
date had arrived and forgotten the cor- 
sage? And was it the same night my 
parents insisted on the perennial picture 
in front of the mirror? The pre-prom 

rties or the PPP's as they're called 
were actually fun! Waiting in line at 
Chez Josef for prom pictures gave every- 
one a chance to say "Hi, don't you look 
great" and "If they could only see us in 
E Block gym class now." 




SENIOR 
BREAKFAST 

Cafeterias 2 and 3 were full, the food 
lines were long, and 300 high schoolers 
were busy talking, joking, or simply eating. 
A typical Minnechaug lunch period? 
Wrong! This scene was taking place at 7:30 
a.m. rather than some time after noon. The 
participants were exclusively members of 
the Class of '82, and the event was definite- 
ly out of the ordinary. 

Early on this June 10 morning, Minne- 
chaug seniors had risen to catch their sen- 
ior breakfast. Class mugs and copies of the 
class will were distributed, yearbooks were 
exchanged, reminiscing about the prom, 
trips to the beach and other earlier senior 
week activities began, and plans for the 
class get-together later that day at Lake 
Mark were made. 

Finally, with stomachs full and class 
spirit running high, seniors moved on to 
their first grduation rehearsal and their 
final hours as Minnechaug "undergraduates

GIRLS' TRACK „ 



The Girls' track team this year enjoyed a 
terrific season. Last year's record was 
tough to compete with. Yet the girls pulled 
together and lost only one meet to their 
arch rival, Amherst. This loss never dulled 
the team spirit. 

The girls shouted in unison during the 
team warmups led by the five senior cap- 
tains, Eileen Voight, Celeste Ayers, Martha 
Bugbee, Beth Libby, and Sue Hesser. Every- 
one touched "Speedy," as they recited the 
team prayer, ending with the traditional, 
"Andale, Andale, Yee-hah!" 

The other official team mascot, Martha's 
dog Jessie, never missed a meet, regardless 
of whether it was home or away.

BOYS' TRACK 
6-5 

The Minnechaug boys' track team finished 
its season with a 6 win, 5 loss record. Under 
the leadership of coach, Mike Stasack and 
senior Captains Todd Schwendenmann, Ke- 
vin Parks, Don Jacek and Kevin Corser, the 
team put winning combinations in each of the 
17 events. 

In the weight events, Schwendenmann and 
senior Forrest Carlson, with sophomores 
Rick Thorpe and Troy Dickinson racked up 
numerous points. Seniors Jacek, Parks and 
Anders Hedelin, ruled the jumping events 
while juniors Dave Schafer and Mike Bran- 
connier pole-vaulted to victory. 

Junior Jim Beaudry tore up the track in the 
sprints while Kris Kober and Kevin Corser 
reigned supreme in the middle distance races. 
In the long distant races, junior Dan Flynn 
and sophomore Ken Belanger led consistent- 
ly in their event. Senior Doug Person, with 
sophomore Dave Mendoza took man places 
in the hurdles. Next year, with almost a full 
squad of lettermen returning, Minnechaug 
can look towards another rewarding season.

GIRLS' 

SOFTBALL 

16-1 

Spirited — that's the best way to de- 
scribe the 1982 varsity Softball team. As in 
previous years, the Girls' Varsity Softball 
team had a winning season. They attained 
first place in Divison B, with a 16-1 record, 
thanks to the hitting of Lisa St. Germain, 
Steph Spolzino, and Kerry Costello, and 
the pitching of Kim Morehouse and Jenni- 
fer Willson (in the '82 season, Jenny had a 
one hitter, and a two hitter, with a 8-1 
record). The team made it to the Western 
Mass Finals. They beat Westfield, then they 
went on to triumphantly beat Chicopee (6- 
5) who the Falcons fell to last year (5-2). 

The team dedicated their season to J.V. 
coach, Nancy Jaunhunan, who was killed 
in a car accident last spring. And, they 
played just the way Miss Jaunhunan would 
have wanted them to play — with spirit.

BASEBALL 
6-9 



The Minnechaug varsity baseball team 
finished the season with a 6-9 record. The 
record was very deceiving, though, of the 
team's performance this year. The squad 
lost five tough games by one run and were 
very competitive for the entire season. The 
squad consisted of mainly juniors led by 
catcher Alan Fabian, center fielder Dave 
Pickering, and pitcher Mike Presz with 
two senior captains, Todd Fuller and 
Chuck Dodson. The squad was young but 
promises a bright future. 



First Row: M. Trombley, M. Marchand, A. Fabian, M. Presz, D. Pickering, B. Lucas, C. Dodson. Se

GIRLS' TENNIS 
5-7 



The 1982 team posted a 5-7 record 
behind the consistent playing (6-6) of 
senior captain and All Western Mass 
selection Tracy McNaughton. Four year 
member Beth Insley posted a 7-5 indi- 
vidual record at doubles after playing 
with the surprise of the season, a very 
consistent (5-6). First year senior, Lor- 
inda Cash with Lauren Ablondi and 
Kelly Havican at singles and Lisa Pa- 
bich, Sue Davin, Druanne Wood and 
Sarah Clark at doubles, next year's team 
has a strong nucleus of returning sea- 
soned veterans! Good luck to the sen- 
iors as they all head off to college.

BOYS' TENNIS 
9-3 



The 1982 Men's Tennis Team had an 
outstanding season. Their final record 
was an impressive nine wins and three 
losses. The tough matches against Chi- 
copee Comp, the first place team in the 
division, were the highlights of the sea- 
son. The top singles players were Fresh- 
man Dave Havican, Sophomore Paul 
Snow, Senior Mark Powell, Will Fuller 
and Freshman Scott Axtmann. The of- 
fensive doubles teams who both compet- 
ed in the tournament were Chuck Coupe 
and John Metzger along with the combi- 
nation of Dave Mitchell and Keith Birk- 
haeuser. 




SYNCHRONIZED 
SWIMMING 



Senior Debbie Campbell led the 28 
member Synchronized Swim Team as 
she performed the solo in the annual 
swim show. The show entitled "The 
evolution of Dance" featured a variety 
of dance numbers ranging from African 
tribal styles to the disco sounds of Stu- 
dio 54. 

A unique addition to this year's show 
was the "guest" performances by Jim 
Beaudry, Mike Branconnier, Mike 
Moody and Dave Schafer during Deb- 
bie's solo. 

The traditional "Pomp and Circum- 
stance" served as the show's finale as 
team members paid a final tribute to 
Frances Conley, Carol Danio, Michelle 
Kolvek, Maureen O'Brien, Wendy Peck 
and Stacey Walker.

MEXICO TRIP 



The Minnechaug Ensemble and 
Concert Band made it to Mexico this 
Spring after long months of fund 
raising. The band played concerts at 
a Mexican public school, the Mexi- 
can Police Academy and in Chapulte- 
pec Park, the city's largest. The high- 
light of the five-day trip was the adju- 
dication at Mexico's National Con- 
servatory of Music. 

The trip involved a great deal of 
sightseeing. The 85-member troupe 
visited the National Palace, the Me- 
tropolitan Cathedral, the Museum of 
Antropology and the ancient pyra- 
mids of Teotihuacan. The trip had its 
ups and downs but it was memorable 
and enjoyed by all.

SPRING 
CONCERT 

The Spring of 1982 was exciting and 
enjoyable due to the combination of the 
choirs and band at the Spring Concert. 
The Girls' Chorus, the Concert Choir 
and the Madrical Singers performed a 
variety of numbers for their last concert 
of the year. Some of the more memora- 
ble number were "Go Out with Joy" and 
the "Senior Soa 

After their trip to Mexico the Wind 
Ensemble displayed their musical excel- 
lence. They played "Marche Lorriane," 
"Sheep May Safely Graze," and an en- 
core of "Washington Post March." The 
concert was well attended and enjoyed 
by all.
